Javascript / Node Developer - Guildford (close to train station) - £35k - £40k

As a JavaScript / Node Developer in this new and interesting role, your primary activity will be to develop server side code and produce client side plugins to fuel web based applications. You will join a team of 3 developers into a great working environment where people are passionate and friendly.

You will also have commercial experience working with JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5 and CSS; along with a working knowledge of Relational and Non-Relational databases.

Having a firm grasp of modern coding conventions such as OOP and MVC, along with a flexible approach to problem solving is also important. You will need to feel comfortable adapting pre-established code and writing secure new code using a test driven approach. Many projects will require you to interact with SQL and NoSQL databases, including creating their appropriate models, along with both consuming and creating APIs of varying types.

Key skills - Node.js, MySQL, Mongo, HTML5, CSS (Bootstrap and Material Design), JavaScript (jQuery) and AJAX.

This role is varied, and at times time pressured, as much of what they do is reactive to the client’s needs. One way to think of it is that with a typical web development shop you will be using plugins to make things happen, but as part of this team you will be creating those plugins instead.

In return for your efforts you will receive a salary of £35k - £40k depending on your experience level, along with a package of benefits upon completion of your 3-month probation period.
